Fiddle Tunes for Two Series

Arrangements by Deborah Greenblatt

Each of Deborah Greenblatt’s Fiddle Tunes for Two collections consists of individual spiral-bound duet books presented in score form with melody on the top line and harmony beneath. This works great for lessons where teacher and student can take turns playing the parts.

Individual duet books are available for Violins, Violas, Cellos, Basses, and Mandolins.

The tunes in each book of each series are in the same keys and most include guitar chords. For instance, a violinist and a cellist could play a wedding together if they each had the appropriate Wedding Fiddling for Two book.
